Just finished drawing the tutorial for a Beaded Spiky Ball, I used silver seed beads and long bugles. The finished piece in the picture is around 1 inch but you can always differ the size of the finished spiky ball by changing the bead size, use bigger beads for bigger beaded ornament, I am using this current one as a charm on my bag, friends says it looks a little like silver fireworks.

See the tutorial at: http://beadjewelrymaking.com/2011/project/january.html

Happy Beading!
